Poser - OFFICIAL F.A.Q (Last Updated: 2024 Jun 14 3:49 pm)



Subject: Sorry I don't know if this is appropriate. But for fans/Admirerers of PhilC

I log into my old Facebook that I haven't used in a while. And saw a post about PhilC from his family. I've been Facebook friends with him for a really long time. Again I'm sorry I don't know if this is appropriate. But this is the message I saw on his Facebook profile.

I know he was a big part of the community. And I even recently bought one of his apps. I recently sent him a message about it and now I see why I haven't gotten a response in over a week.

Very sad news and a massive loss to the community.

 

 

I use Poser 13 on Windows 11 - For Scene set up I use a Geekcom A5 -  Ryzen 9 5900HX, with 64 gig ram and 3 TB  storage, mini PC with final rendering done on normal sized desktop using an AMD Ryzen Threadipper 1950X CPU, Corsair Hydro H100i CPU cooler, 3XS EVGA GTX 1080i SC with 11g Ram, 4 X 16gig Corsair DDR4 Ram and a Corsair RM 100 PSU .   The desktop is in a remote location with rendering done via Queue Manager which gives me a clearer desktop and quieter computer room.

He was one of the first members to create freebies for us, here at Renderosity. I once met him in the former Renderosity chat room and thanked him for sharing his amazing work.

R.I.P. PhilC

He was very, very patient with me when I bought my first copy of Wardrobe Wizard after I dipped my toes into Poser. He will be missed by many.

He was always helpful and could be very funny too, this is very sad news.

So very sad. He was a wonderful and very sharing person. He will be missed.

So very sad. PhilC was a 3D master. Every time I use Wardrobe Wizard, I say, "Thanks, Phil."

He was only 68. Way too young. A true pillar of the Poser community.

That does seem on the young side considering life expectancy these days but then a sad loss at any age.

Sad to hear this. I learned a lot from him.

Certainly it's appropriate to mark the passing of such a figure as PhilC RIP

An era has ended...

It's only a year or so since PhilC patched one of his registered tools for me to work with Win'10...

That was Phil for you.  Although he'd retired from Poser, he'd still step in to help out.  A real gent.

Phil had the best customer service of anyone - he'd often get back to you the same day to help you resolve any issues you might have.

As Terry Pratchett once said “No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.” Well, Phil, you made some very positive ripples in this community. We won't forget you any time soon.


JohnDoe641 ( ) posted Tue, 28 March 2023 at 12:32 AM

I haven't posted anything here in a long time but I still check back to see if anything major has happened. This makes me very... very very sad. :(

RIP Phil, one of the best and nicest people in this community.

'tis the end of an era; this news confirms it.

Requiescat in Pacem, PhilC.

Aww, RIP to a very kind and generous gentleman.


NikKelly ( ) posted Tue, 28 March 2023 at 7:46 PM

May I point out that PhilC's wife died a few months earlier, so that family has suffered a double tragedy...

I took my first steps into PoserPython using the only existing full-fledged tutorial ever made for Poser, and it was written by Phil Cooke. I was a big fan of his scripts for Poser, and they have left their mark in my Poser history. He will be missed!!!!!!!!
